I can honestly say that path to discovery really started in the Masters Social Work Program and ended in the College of Education. My academic experiences with Dr. Halter and Dr.Downing opened my mind to the need for social justice. Though their mentorship, they put me on the path of discovery. But it was within the College of Education that I was tested, challenged, and shaped into the academic professional and social justice advocate I am today. I owe a great deal to the direction and mentorship of Drs. Alexander, Trent, Anderson, and Parker.
